This just in: SB has fallen in love with Baltimore. He was up there for a couple of days for SPARC and stayed with CSers in a very awesomely goth rowhouse near Johns Hopkins, and is now a little bit convinced that we need to move there. Jackie and I drove up Tuesday night (despite my illness) to join him to see Iron & Wine at the horrible horrible Ram’s Head LIVE! – my first time in Baltimore other than drives by en route to Philly or BWI. The show was great, despite the smelly large man standing directly in front of me, and we had amazing yogurt in the morning at Carma’s Cafe before heading home. I’m not sure I’m in love with the town, but I am eager to go back when we have more time to explore.
In other news, Basil has figured out that he can get Mina to give up her prime spots by bothering her with love and affection. In the last 3 days I’ve seen him lick her head until she moved, climb on top of her until she moved, and also head-butt her until she moved. What a jerk cat!
